Today Ashley Morgan taught us how to show reflection and feedback from our constellations lessons for our blog. I have learnt that reflection is personal to you and to make sure what we write is meaningful and effective.
- What and how you are learning?
- What went well?
- What didn’t go well?
- What have you done to overcome this?
- Where are you now?
- What can you improve on?
- What will you do to get further?
- How will you get there?
- Are you nearly there yet?
- Show academic strengths and weaknesses
- It’s not necessarily what you like/hate doing
- Make it a journey.
So after this I noted down a few strengths and weaknesses of my own.
- I enjoy writing, I find it easy to remember more information if I write it down or make lists.
- I am good at time keeping, I have never missed a deadline.
- I have good organisational skills, I am very prepared for my lessons.
- I find it difficult to remember certain words, I can be very forgetful.
- I struggle with structure in an essay.
- I find reading difficult, It takes me a while to get the information in my head.
- I can get very stressed.
So we work on how we can over come this for example:
Noting down information helps me remember so I could do this more in future. Also I could get assistance in structuring essays on blackboard or reading past essays. I can look on blackboard for advice on how to cope with reading better, and for stress I could take a break and come back to my work with fresh eyes. You can always say how you are doing in this process for instance “it’s difficult but I’m getting there”.
- Was it useful?
- Was it interesting?
- Areas of improvement?
- How was the timing?
- What was the room like?
- Do you want more or less of something?
- Do you want more tutorials or lectures?
Only make feedback when asked or when it’s needed.
